Win a cashmere tartan scarf by Johnstons of Elgin, £30 Hummingbird Bakery vouchers and a cookbook

To celebrate the launch of our new limited edition St. Andrew’s Day Cupcakes arriving at our bakeries from 28th-30th November, this is your chance to win a gorgeous scarf made from the softest cashmere in a beautiful tartan check worth £99 from Johnstons of Elgin.


This year St. Andrew’s Day is on Thursday 30th November 2017 and it is the national day of Scotland.

At our bakeries from Tuesday 28th to Thursday 30th November we will be baking irresistible special edition Millionaire Shortbread Cupcakes and Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcakes.


New Millionaire Shortbread Cupcakes have a rich chocolate sponge with pieces of shortbread baked through, a golden caramel filling and a smooth cream cheese frosting.


Our Red Velvet Cheesecake cupcakes give our bestselling flavour a twist with a spoonful of chocolate chip cheesecake baked into Red Velvet sponge and swirled with cream cheese frosting.



These bonny Scottish-themed bakes will be hand-decorated fresh from the oven with blue and white fondant hearts, the Scottish Saltire flag and a St. Andrew’s Day message.


So, do you fancy celebrating St. Andrew’s Day in style? One lucky winner will be wrapped up in luxury this Christmas as we have one luxuriously soft unisex Hessian Dress Stewart cashmere tartan scarf from Johnstons of Elgin to give away.



Years of manufacturing craft and knowledge go into each beautiful scarf, in beige, red, purple and blue cashmere woven in Elgin, Scotland. Each scarf is wonderfully soft and cosy, made from 100 percent cashmere.



The winner will also receive £30 vouchers to spend either in-store or online at The Hummingbird Bakery’s seven UK bakeries and a copy of The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook revised and expanded edition with new recipes added.


Two runners up will each receive a copy of The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook new edition.
